“We’ll see YOU at the BABA-Q!”

We invite you to join Eagle Country 99.3 and the Bright Area Business Association for the 1st Annual Beer, Bands & BABA-Q. It’s a new community celebration featuring a BBQ cooking competition, bands, and brews and wine.

BABA and Eagle Country 99.3 are partnering for this event to benefit multiple non-profit organizations in and around the Bright area. Make plans to attend with your friends and family on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Bright Fire Department on Salt Fork Road.

It’s all for great local causes!
